    Embankment Tube Station
    The VIP London tour to the London Eye, Westminster and Buckingham Palace

    Hello! You should be outside Embankment Tube Station, with the picturesque River Thames directly in front of you.

    My name is Nicki Bannerman. I have loved writing and telling stories since childhood and I now work as a radio presenter on a London radio station, as a newsreader on local community radio and as a guest on the BBC – and you can find me online on various podcast programmes.

    This is my first VoiceMap story so I am excited to share it with you. I love to visit London for work and theatre and just for fun – to see the bustle and the glamour and take in the sheer wonder of the place. I was very honoured when the VoiceMap editors in South Africa found me in London on the internet, so I am very pleased to chat to you today. I will start your walking tour by taking you along the river to Westminster and up to Trafalgar Square, all the way to Buckingham Palace. I hope to share some of the majestic glory and importance of our royal, political and cultural destinations along the way. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed walking around.

    Before we get going, let me tell you how this works. VoiceMap uses your location to play commentary automatically. You can put your phone away, and focus on the surroundings. There might be silence now and again, but just keep walking until I say otherwise.

    One more thing before we go, if you see a homeless person around this station selling a magazine, please buy one. ”The Big Issue” offers people who are homeless the opportunity to earn their own money and take control of their lives so it will make a huge difference to them for a better future in London.

    When you're ready, turn immediately right to walk under the Jubilee Bridge and cross over safely at the traffic lights under the bridge. I will meet you on the other side of the road in front of the river.
